    She made it through the night. She's still drinking water. She also was feebly clucking, sounds gurgly maybe.I listened to her breathing yesterday but didn't hear any rasping.

    I would give her the nutridrench twice a day. Make sure to slowly put it in side of her beak. I'm glad she made it threw the night that is a good sign. Try and get her to eat and drink as much as possible. She needs her strength.

    Let me see if I can get this person to help you with tubefeeding her. That way she can get the nutrition she needs.

    She's standing funny, like maybe she has a suck egg or water belly (ascites). Can you post a picture of her poop?
